Ancient Man and the Scottsburg Lowlands: “Recently I discovered that the area I now live in, southern Indiana, has an ancient past. Numerous dwelling artifacts have been found around what used to be an ancient lake near Scottsburg. Many are assumed to be over 13,000 years old. I’m interested in how ideas, functions, process, and craftsmanship translate over time, and this curiosity about the past influences my present work. A big part of the curiosity is that the ancient past is an unresolved question. There’s so much we don’t know, and it’s haunting to me.”
